Offensive Line

If Forrest Lamp is the standard by which all offensive guards will be judged in this draft class, then what player makes the best case to replace him at the top?

Dorian JohnsonWhen scoring interior linemen in 2017 there is less than 40 points separating the product from Western Kentucky from our #2 ranked guard, Pitt’s Dorian Johnson. To put that in perspective, scores for our top players end up with 4 digits. To say that it’s extremely close may be understating it a bit.

Johnson is a mauler in the ground game, sound in pass protection and possesses an NFL frame. He moves swiftly for a large man and can make impact blocks at the second level. Dorian has played both guard and tackle at the college level so the versatility that coaches love is part of his game. While there are some fundamentals that will need a bit of coaching up the upside is obvious from the moment you begin watching his game.

With such a close comparison in our metric, we would not be surprised if Dorian Johnson ends up being the better of the options over Forrest Lamp.
